Heights Youth Club offers summer fun for area kids
The Heights Youth Club is now halfway through its third annual summer program. The club kicked off the summer with its first annual "Taste of Heights" fundraiser where members of City Council and residents came out to enjoy food from over 20 area restaurants and to support the club. Special thanks to Jimmy O’Neill for his hard work and dedication to making the evening an overwhelming success.
Since the event, club members have enjoyed various activities in the gym, games room, computer lab, art room and teen floor. All of the activities are age specific and all members get a chance to be in every area of the building at some point during each day. Members also enjoy a full hot lunch every afternoon when they arrive.
This summer members have participated in Social Responsibility Trainings, Fifty Nifty States, Stranger Danger Self-Defense, Talent Shows, Story Writing/Telling, Video Game Tournaments, Sports and Game Room Tournaments and many other programs.
Membership in the club is only $10 for an entire year. Enrollment is open all year round for kids 6 to 18. Come to the club to check it out and pick up a membership application. The club is located on the corner of Lee Road and Washington Boulevard. Contact us at 216-321–CLUB. Hope to see you!
Jeff Haynes is the Heights Youth Club's assistant director.
